Lutyens Restaurant

85 Fleet Street, LONDON, EC4Y 1AE

2 rosettes

The elegant Lutyens-designed building that was once home to Reuters and the Press Association now bears the Conran stamp in its cool pastel tones, pale wood, white linen and pixellated marble floors. The seductive operation takes in a city slicker wine bar with a stellar listing of fine wines, the restaurant and raw bar (for oysters, tartares, carpaccios and céviche), private dining rooms in the basement and a members' club. Chef Henrik Ritzen's light touch cooking is rooted in classic French technique but there are subtle hints of his Nordic roots. This is seen in a simple and elegant starter of smoked eel with beetroot, Gourmande pear and bitter leaves that relies on the sheer quality of the raw materials for its effect, or a main-course involving haunch of venison teamed with pickled walnut purée, roasted celeriac and grey leg chanterelles. Fish is handled with equal skill - perhaps partnering poached monkfish with cockles, swede, lettuce and Iberico Bellota shoulder. Dessert brings spiced quince soufflé with stem ginger ice cream.
